An awesome day out!

Friendly instructor who gave us a good briefing, targeted at the right level for the group. Good kayak with all the safety bits and pieces. Had a lovely day in the park cruising around the beaches, Adele Island where we saw lots of seals and pups on the rocks and in the water and went right around Fishermans island. Nb we did a days freedom rental
